But what of the Xbox One? Microsoft has mentioned on several occasions that its console is outperforming the Xbox 360, and yet one has to reach deep into the archives to find the last official figures: 10 million shipped back in November 2014. MIcrosoft has continued to highlight smaller victories – outselling PS4 on a given month in the US, for example – only without the benefit of an update to the bigger picture. In October this year, the company said that it would no longer reveal Xbox hardware sales in its financial reports, choosing to focus on engagement metrics related to Xbox Live instead.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
